Over the last year, we've seen all kinds of alcoholic seltzers hot store shelves. And now there's another effervescent beverage that I didn't expect to see but is indeed real...Jelly Belly sparkling water!
Based off of the name and previous experience with Jelly Belly's, I expected this to be a sugary drink. BUT these seltzers are going to have zero sweeteners and zero calories! In fact, they will only use two ingredients.
You'll be able to find them on store shelves as soon as next week in an eight pack of the iconic Jelly Belly jelly bean flavors. The flavors include French vanilla, lemon lime, orange sherbet, piña colada, pink grapefruit, tangerine, very cherry, and watermelon.
In a press release, the co-founder of Joffer Beverage Company, Stephen Joffer, said that the idea for this drink came to the family at a Mother's Day party: "We were on the back patio, drinking a couple of the more popular sparkling water brands, when I said out loud, "If only someone could nail a sparkling water with really stand-out flavors." The lightbulb came on when my dad suggested, "Why not our own Jelly Belly flavors? We are known for flavor innovation after all."
Do these sound good to you?
